Bitdefender Labs has released BDAntiRansomware, a free tool which keeps your PC safe from some of the most common ransomware threats.



The program "protects against known and possible future versions of the CTB-Locker, Locky and TeslaCrypt crypto ransomware families".

BDAntiRansomware requires installation, but by default displays no interface, and doesn’t consume any significant system resources. It doesn't present any difficulties with false positives or anything else, but if you do run into problems, protection can be temporarily disabled.

The program doesn’t require that you have any other Bitdefender software installed, and it doesn't require any extra marketing payload (there’s no registration required, browser pages didn’t start opening at the Bitdefender site).

BDAntiRansomware is no substitute for a full antivirus tool but right now it appears to offer a worthwhile second layer of protection to your existing security suite.

BDAntiRansomware is a free application for Windows 7 and later.



BDAntiRansomware version is 1.0.11.26 as of Tue Mar 29, 2016 but you always get the latest release because it is directly downloaded from BitDefender servers at:

Alternative, although in beta has proved itself.

Malwarebytes Anti-Ransomware beta.

A completely proactive and signature-less technology that is able to detect and block even the most dangerous of ransomware variants like CryptoWall4, CryptoLocker, Tesla, and CTB-Locker.

Thank you thank you!!! Very underrated software, now if only it could be used for your phone also!!!!
 
Ransomware changes its face almost every month. The last version so called shit.files ransomware appeared in Europe just recently and infected several thousand computers. It is written with RSA-4096 and AES-256 coding, there are details http://soft2secure.com/news/shit-files-virus. Thus, be aware of it and do backups every time till there is no effective anti-virus programm.

This worked great. I saw the blinking warning, X'd the tab in Chrome and it just went away.

THANKS!
